Baldwin fires back at Trump: I’ll keep up my impression for your impeachment, resignation

Actor Alec Baldwin fired back at President Trump after Trump attacked his “dying mediocre career” Friday, saying he intends to continue playing Trump on “Saturday Night Live” through Trump’s “impeachment hearings” and “resignation speech.”

“Agony though it may be, I’d like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago,” Baldwin tweeted. “You know. The Good Stuff. That we’ve all been waiting for.” 

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published Thursday, Baldwin said that playing Trump on “SNL” is “agony.”

“Every time I do it now, it’s like agony. Agony. I can’t,” he said.

Trump took to Twitter Friday morning to slam Baldwin, calling his impression “terrible.”

{mosads}”Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony,” he wrote. “Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!”

Trump has long gone after Baldwin’s impression of him and has previously taken to Twitter to attack the actor and “SNL” as having poor ratings and not being funny.

Baldwin won an Emmy in 2017 for his portrayal of Trump on the show.
